Overview: Zaros was the most powerful of the active gods during the second age and only second to Guthix in overall power. He was likely the third god to come to Gielinor after Guthix and Seren. Zaros is accredited with the creation of the Ancient Magicks and he was apparantly a quite accomplished wielder of it. Zaros also won the Mahjarrat race over from the god Icthlarin sometimes during the second age which began 8000 years ago and ended 6000 years ago. He trained the Mahjarrat in the art of war and dominated much of Gielinor. Zaros domain at its peak covered much of Gielinor and no other god has ever been close to that. He was eventually overthrown and banished from Gielinor by one of his Mahjarrat generals, Zamorak, at the end of the second age. Zaros is known as the "empty lord" because the mere mentioning of his name can cause his return to Gielinor and with followers he would be able to remain. Some consider Zaros the true god of chaos and destruction but others think of him as "good" god. In any event, Zamorak still fear him after all these years and Saradomin won't mention him by name. The Kalphite queen, on the other hand, claims that the Kalphites are awaiting Zaros return. There is also a grave with Zaros symbol in the goblin village.
